I have used these forums for many errors I have already had with WDS and my new job so thanks so far.
I am currently installing a new image using WDS on my 2008 r2 server. I work at a school and have ran it successfully on over 50 computers in the past week.
My problem with 2 computers is when you are supposed to select the partition that you would like to install the image to, it is not selectable. Normally you would click on "C:" and then have the options to format or do other things. When this screen comes up, though, I cannot click on anything. I cannot select the drive to be able to reformat it but it does show the size of the drive and the the current space used. Everything still shows up as normal but is just dimmed out.
I have run a Hard Disk Test on the computers thinking that the hard drive was bad, but both passed successfully. I am not using an unattend file as I do not know enough about WDS to even begin with it.
Does anyone know of a fix for this? Also, could it still be a bad hard drive that just happens to pass the HP hard disk test?
Thanks for your time.

You can seek help in Setup Deployment forum:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserversetup/threads
Anyways, Seems HDD is not detected by WDS while you install OS.This kind of issue can observe when we miss to include HDD drivers path to WDS image.I suggest you refer, Adding Device Drivers To WDS Images:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistadeployment/thread/f8b1a4f7-4f7b-4462-b33b-02eb30c7c0a4/
